Comparing AMS options? You are not alone.
One of the biggest questions we hear about the community driven Open Source Associaion Management Software is - how are you different?
In a Tendenci vs. WildApricot comparison, we provide more for your association in several ways - some big and some small - but all important when looking for the right fit for your organization, especially when it comes to transparency reports and Why isn't Wild Apricot posting one?
1. OPEN SOURCE AMS
This is a big differentiator. Probably the biggest. Why? Because it gives you the freedom to build a truly custom site on top of the Tendenci framework. All the functionality with your own processes at work! WildApricot uses a proprietary software package that limits functionality to only those features WildApricot chooses to include.
2. CUSTOMIZE YOUR INTERFACE
Not just the overall site graphics but individual pages and data feeds. Make your membership application look the way you want or display your Business Directories in a way that makes sense to your membership. WildApricot has one interface for all associations, forcing you to adapt your processes to the software instead of the other way around.
3. HOST WHEREVER YOU WANT
You can host your website - software and data - at the Tendenci hosting provider of your choice. You can even host internally on your network for free! Yes, really. WildApricot requires you to host on their servers, providing them complete control over your data.
4. NO PER ADMIN/PER USER PRICING
Why? Because we feel this limits software usage. You shouldn't be penalized for implementing distributed authoring or increasing the size of your membership. WildApricot uses a tiered pricing structure that ties your costs to your success.
5. TRUE ORGANIZATIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
All members that join as part of their organization's membership have member rights - pricing, access and benefits. No second tier status for these valued individuals. WildApricot handles the individuals associated with a corporate or organizational membership as merely a contact and not a member.
6. NO LONG-TERM CONTRACTS
We believe we need to earn your business every day. By offering month-to-month hosting, you have the option to leave at any time. But we hope you stay and take advantage of everything Tendenci has to offer. WildApricot locks you into a multi-year contract regardless of your level of satisfaction with the WildApricot software or support team.
7. ACTIVE DEVELOPER COMMUNITY
Tendenci is a community - of users, designers, developers, supporters, and hosted clients - that continually work to add new features to the software. Find us on Github and request or contribute your ideas to benefit all Tendenci users. WildApricot has a team of Russian developers making decisions about which features to include in the software.
Tendenci supports over 75 languages and has been part of the Transifex community for several years. Through the generous efforts of this group, Tendenci provides multilingual support for users around the world. WildApricot supports only translated content.
** THE ONLY COMPARISON IS FREEDOM **
With individualized customization, infinite scalability and freedom of choice, Tendenci AMS is the open source solution you have been looking for.
